I don’t know about you but I am so excited for the new Star Wars movie!!! I just can’t wait. My birthday present to myself is to go see it. So to help get you excited I wanted to share these super cute Minnie Mouse Stormtrooper Cupcakes that would be perfect to get the entire family excited about the new film.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker looks amazing and it will end the Skywalker Skywalker saga. I shall be going to see it at our local Movie Lounge on the 19th 🙂
So let’s get this party started with these super cute Stormtrooper Cupcakes.
The funny thing is that I really never watched Star Wars until I met my husband and he just loved them. Ever since I have been hooked on it. I have really enjoyed all the new movies.
One thing about this recipe is that you can make them into a fun themed party to have before the opening of the new film. You could invite friends over and chow down on Star Wars-inspired food, then go see the new film.
Below you will find the full recipe. I just used already made cake mix but you are more than welcome to make these homemade. The best part about making these is crafting the fondant. I do hope that you enjoy and be sure to check out our other recipes. Happy Baking 🙂
